DQ 2;

Logic can do a great deal in helping us understand our arguments. Explain what advantages we obtain by studying logic in terms of improving our reasoning. Consider a debate over whether prayer should be allowed in public schools. Explain what logic can and cannot do. In other words, what kinds of questions and topics are not decided by logical analysis?

. Question : Which of these could be seen as a premise in an argument?

2. Question : A valid deductive argument, the premises of which are accepted as true, shows

3. Question : "You didn't like that book; so you probably don't like to read" is

4. Question : In the statement, "You didn't like that restaurant; so you probably don't like to eat out," "you probably don't like to out" is the

5. Question : If a reason that is not relevant to the conclusion is given,

6. Question : Which of the following is most likely to be a conclusion?

DQ 2

Construct an inductive argument for a specific conclusion. Then, explain what you might do to make this inductive argument stronger, either by revising the premises or by revising the conclusion.

PHI 103 Week 3 Assignment Stereotype Paper

PHI 103 Week 3 Assignment Stereotype Paper

Stereotype Paper.

Read Stereotyping Has Lasting Negative Impact: Prejudice has lingering effects,study shows and watch How Pre-existing Beliefs Distort Logical Reasoning.

Discuss three stereotypes you encounter in your own life and the effect thosestereotypes can have on others.

This can be a stereotype you realize you havebeen guilty of holding or someone else.

Explain

(a) what the stereotype is and

(b) what sort of argument, no matter how flawed, might be used to support it, and

(c) identify any mistakes you find in that argument.The paper must be three pages in length (excluding title and reference page) andin APA (6th edition) format. You must use at least three resources, one of whichmust be the course text, and two resources must either be found in the AshfordOnline Library or from the provided sources.

DQ 1

Considering the fallacies discussed in Chapter Four of An Introduction to Logic, construct three different arguments that display distinct fallacies. Give an explanation of why each makes a mistake in drawing the conclusion it does. Review your classmates’ examples and see if they, in fact, commit the fallacy identified.

PHI 103 Week 3 DQ 2 (One rich source of fallacies is the media

DQ 2

One rich source of fallacies is the media: television, radio, magazines, and the Internet (including, of course, commercials.) Identify two distinct fallacies you see committed in the media. Do you think it is more likely that you will not be fooled by these fallacies having studied logic? What do you think those presenting these arguments assume about the logical skills of their viewers? Is this a good or bad assumption for them to make?

1. Question : Mrs.Orlof teaches two history classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Yesterday she gave the same test to both classes. Anyone who failed the test must take a retest. Since a greater percentage of students who took the morning test failed the test than students who took the afternoon test, more of Orlof’s morning history students than afternoon history students will have to take the retest.

The conclusion above is not necessarily valid because

2. Question : All sages provide both wisdom and inspiration. Since Dasha’s speech contained wisdom and greatly inspired her audience, Dasha is a sage.

PHI 103 PHI 103 Week 4

DQ 1; As stated in our text book “scientists design experiments and try to obtain results verifying or disproving a hypothesis, but philosophers are the driving force in determining what factors determine the validity of scientific results.” (Mosser, 2011). Karl Popper's philosophy of science uses modus as the central method of disconfirming, or falsifying, scientific hypotheses.

DQ 2

Mary is poor. She has not been able to find a job and has two children she needs to feed. Assume Mary is forced to let her children go hungry or steal some food from a local grocery store. Which should she do? Construct an argument that supports Mary's decision to steal the food or an argument that shows why Mary should not steal the food. Critique the arguments offered by your classmates.

DQ 2

Imagine someone asks you what you have learned in your logic class and what you found to be the most useful information you learned there. Is it important for people to study logic? What kinds of mistakes might they make without having been exposed to a careful study of reasoning provided by logic? Offer your response to these questions, and compare your answers to your classmates' responses
